Somebody's Child

34" x 34"
in this first piece on Black Lives Matter, I researched over 4700 African Americans who died of gunshots or asphyxiation in police encounters since 2000. the center section of this piece reflects the printed names of the 76 black lives extinguished by asphyxiation or restraint. the surrounding names are but a tiny percentage of those killed by gunfire in encounters with police.  all of these folks had Mamas. all were Somebody's Child.
